Plans for this year

Lately I have been buying curriculum like crazy….mostly used.  I love being able to see all of the options and try to figure out which direction to go.  So far, here are my plans for the rest of the year (we school year round):

Reading: Sonlight Grade 1 Readers

Phonics: finishing up Phonics Pathways, All About Spelling

Handwriting: Peterson Directed Handwriting, Draw Write Now

Vocabulary: Wordly Wise 3000 2nd edition

Math: Singapore Standards 1A (spine), RightStart level A (for geometry concepts), Miquon and Life of Fred (for fun)

Science: finish up our invertebrate study and move on to vertebrates

History/Geography: Maps Charts and Graphs A and B, TOG year 3 (where I am in my self-education) – I plan on just reading some of the LG selections, nothing more than that

Art: Artistic Pursuits, Meet the Masters, Child Size Masterpieces

Music: Kinderbach

  1. I am getting all my stuff in too and getting anxious to start using it! I got some great stuff for math at a teacher’s garage sale the other day. I love getting a bargain.

    Anyway, I have considered trying All About Spelling. Have you used it before or will this be your first year? I’m anxious to hear from people who have tried it before I purchase it. Thanks!
